Start the ride from the front door of the "legendary" North of the Border Bike Shop.  Ride a Norco Torrent 27.5 plus mountain bike and explore Los Penasquitos Canyon, an easy to navigate, coastal sage scrubecosystem.  There are easy fireroads or technical singletrack, so you can pick your poison.  Discover a waterfall, a duck pond and diverse wildlife which can include redtail hawks, deer, coyotes, roadrunners and if you are lucky a bobcat. Venture out to the "Tunnels" a fully encapsulated trail system covered with the indigenous California Manzanita trees. Pedal past the remains of an 1848 Adobe home and also visit the Los Penasquitos Ranch House built in 1823.

Helmets, pedals, water and snacks are available.

Rentals available during shop hours only.

About the Bikes

A brand new model for 2016, the Torrent is Norco’s first ever 650B Plus trail mountain bike. Designed from the ground up with Trail geometry, 45mm rims, and 3” tires, the Torrent is an aggressive hardtail mountain bike with a quick but stable manner that will have riders whooping with joy on flowing singletrack, dominating rocks and roots on technical downhills, and tackling steep, loose climbs with ease. Novice and experienced riders alike will benefit from the increased traction and control of the Torrent.
